DocBook V5.1CR3 XSD

Hello world,

This afternoon (well, local afternoon anyway), I published an XML
Schema version of DocBook V5.1CR3:

  http://docbook.org/xsd/5.1CR3/

I assert that it's a valid XSD. Because Saxon EE said so.

It passed a smoke test on a few DocBook documents, but is surely
buggy. It is also considerably more liberal than the normative DocBook
schemas. I don't expect it to reject any valid DocBook documents, but
it is by no means guaranteed that passing the XSD test means your
document is valid.

Interesting open question: how many of these XSD validation
infilicities could be tested with XSD 1.1 xs:assert statements?

Share and enjoy.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm

Localisation bug in common/titles.xsl?


Hi all,

just a question: Is the following a localisation bug or am I
overlooking something obvious and this is fine?

DocBook 1.78.1, file: common/titles.xsl, line 485ff:

[...]
<xsl:template match="answer" mode="title.markup">
  <!-- answers don't have titles -->
  <xsl:text>Answer</xsl:text>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="qandaentry" mode="title.markup">
  <!-- qandaentrys are represented by the first question in them -->
  <xsl:text>Question</xsl:text>
</xsl:template>
[...]

Regards,

Stefan.

Announcing (informally) DocBook V5.1CR3

Hello world,

Long time, no see. 

I've (informally) released DocBook V5.1CR3 on docbook.org:

  http://docbook.org/xml/5.1CR3/

I still have to pull together some sort of ZIP file or something to
get it officially released on the OASIS site. That's a task for
tomorrow.

In the meantime, please take CR3 for a test drive, I think 5.1 is very
nearly finished.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm

Wiki markup to DocBook.

Hello Folks,

Is there an authoritative wiki markup to DocBook xsl out there?  I found a text2html xsl out there, but need
DocBook now.

My googling did not find what I am looking for.  I have raw text coming out of ERwin in the descriptions and need
to transform it to something more presentable.

Thanks,
Loren

<link> in <address>

Hi guys,

Can you use <link xlink:href=""> in <address>?
The link works in FO but its not working for me in html5 and epub3 it 
just outputs the text and doesn't create a link.

Thanks,

Peter

output order preface epub3

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is a bug or my xml. The structure is below:

<preface>
<title>Foreword</title>

<para>...</para>
<para ....</para>

<section>
<title>...</title>
<para>...</para>
<para>...</para>
</section>

<section>
<title>...</title>
<para>...</para>
<para>...</para>
</section>

<section>
<title>...</title>
<para>...</para>
<para>...</para>
</section>

<para>...</para>
<para>...</para>
<para>...</para>
</preface>

In the epub 3 the paragraphs at the end are outputted after the paragraphs at the start before the first section. Do I need to just wrap the first and last paragraphs into a simplesect to avoid this?

It works fine in the FO output.

common image scaling properties

Is there any way to set a common set of image scaling properties for print output, without editing every instance of the imagedata element?

I want to set:

scalefit="1"width="100%", and contentdepth="100%"


for all images.


I guess I need to add this to my customization layer?

does HTMLbook have any traction

Hi Folks,

I've been considering DocBook for several applications, but then I came 
across some presentations on HTMLbook, and note that O'Reilly seems to 
have shifted to it.  But.. I can't seem to find anything about it that 
isn't put out by O'Reilly.

Which leads me to ask: anybody know if HTMLbook is getting any traction 
vis-a-vis DocBook?  And, if so, where are the focal points (e.g. email 
lists and such)?

Thanks,

Miles Fidelman
